As you warm up this winter and set your eyes on a new year, take some time to cozy up and dive into our Winter 2016/17 issue of Modern In Denver magazine, packed with in-depth stories on all your favorite art, architecture, and design projects across Colorado. On one cover, we feature an exquisite Cherry Hills home by Boss Architecture—an 11,000-square-foot masterpiece made possible by the collaborative efforts of the architect, builder, and entire design team. On the other cover: a bright, refreshing look at an office space for architects, by architects. Welcome to the new Davis Partnership workspace. In between, we cover a tiny house, a commercial expansion, a warm kitchen, a modern art exhibit, a hip graphic design duo, and our favorite philosophy of comfort and well-being—Hygge.

// FIELD STUDY
Our carefully curated roundup of gadgets, modern accessories, and other items you didn’t know you needed.
// ONLY WHAT YOU NEED
If you think the trend toward smaller homes is a passing fad, think again. This Boulder couple proves that even on a substantial plot of land, 450 square feet is more than enough space to turn a tiny house into a happy home.
// COZY BY DESIGN
Find some warmth this winter by embracing Hygge, the Danish philosophy of comfort and well-being. Any belief system that includes turning off phones and having a cup of coffee is worth exploring.
// ALL TOGETHER NOW
In the age of specialization, it’s increasingly rare to see architects drive all phases of home design. For Boss Architecture, leading a hand-picked team of collaborators is the only way to create timeless, contextual spaces.
// NUOVO TILE — CHE FIGATA
Cersaie is an annual exhibition of the newest and best innovations in ceramic tile and bathroom furnishings. This year’s installment drew 800 brands and more than 100,000 visitors, including Modern In Denver. Here’s what we loved.
// SIDE BY SIDE
Meet the graphic design duo who shares everything — a business, a life, and a growing stable of clients who benefit from their Novel brand of illustration and typography.
// PERFECT(LY) BOUND
Building transparency, efficiency, and flow into workplace culture begins with applying those very principles to the spaces your firm inhabits. Well, hello there, Davis Partnership.
// ABOVE AND BEYOND
When your brand relies on knowing the past, present, and future of the built environment, having a bird’s-eye view of the city comes in handy. Design firm Gensler used that perch as the starting point for CBRE’s thoroughly modern new headquarters.
// ROOM WITH A VIEW
When Room & Board expanded its longtime Cherry Creek location to include more space and a rooftop deck, they called on the same firm who designed the building decades earlier. A brief Q&A on continuity and ingenuity.
// ALL THE RIGHT ANGLES
Getting the kitchen in this Hilltop home just right required the thoughtful merging of modern sensibilities and mid-century ideals. Designers at Thurston Kitchen & Bath weren’t the least bit afraid of that challenge.
// HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD
The ascension of the River North Arts District continues with the addition of a wide-open neighborhood market at the corner of 27th and Larimer.
// OPEN WIDE
Artist Terry Maker repurposes ordinary biomedical objects for a new exhibit at the Anschutz Medical Campus. Take two of these and call us in the morning.
// NOW IS THE TIME
The application of time is fundamental to our modern lives. Lucky for us, there have never been more tools available for designing brilliant timepieces. See for yourself.
// ONE LAST THING
Good modern furniture typically comes with a hefty price tag. Get ready for Modern by Dwell, an affordable (but stylish) collection coming soon to a Target store near you.
